5:04 am
>> places like the nationals baseball game, we realized there was a cooling center. they anticipated the heat. we learned about anyone else opening one? >> we haven't heard of cooling centers open. maybe it is too early and we haven't had a long stretch of really oppressive heat but you know, you have to think of cooler places such as the mall or the library and you know, some of the misting tents also at the parade. but you know, just think of those indoor places where you know that they're going to be cool and you can spend a few hours in there. back to you. >> surae is live in mclean, virginia, this morning. >> while you slept, an apparent breach of a truce in the capital of yemen. >> gunfire could be heard throughout the night in the streets after a week of bloody fighting there. there had been a truce called between government forces and a tribe seeking the president's ouster. the president's delay has resisted internal and outside pressure to give up the power. in southwest virginia, police say a sheriff's deputy is behind a murder and the wounding of a state trooper in

5:19 am
ruling. it upheld the ban on dancing inside the memorial as too disruptive to other visitors. the dancers were arrested on charges of demonstration without a permit and say they'll give repeat performances. >> we're going to keep coming back and keep coming back and expressing our individuality, our freedom of expression, nothing is going to stop us. >> the next dancing demonstration is planned for this saturday. meanwhile, a park police spokesman says the chief has ordered an investigation into whether the arresting officers acted too harshly. >> still ahead, the nationals try to win one against their -- the top team in their division. >> the hard team in their division, too. >> plus two areas who play an exciting game to determine the ncaa lacrosse champion. highlights next in sports. >> before we head to break, time to look at the question of the morning. >> the question was studies showed the more education a person has, the larger this will be. so, is it a, their home? b, their paycheck?

5:31 am
on constitution where it meets 17th street. same situation as we head over to north capital street and h street. it appears that we don't really have anything going on out this way. southwest, it is the same situation. not too many people heading into the district so far. this is independence and washington. looks great. and your train also happy to report that all of these lines are running on-time. still ahead, andrea and mike, we'll look at 95 in maryland at 5:38. over to you. the search is underway for clues in an overnight murder in capitol heights, maryland. >> two men were found on rawlins avenue near denise drive. just before midnight. prince george's county police say they were both dead at the scene and suffered trauma to the body. police have not released any information on the victim's identities or any possible motives or suspects at this point. this morning, albert haynesworth may appear in a fairfax county courtroom. the redskins lineman is facing charges stemming from an alleged road rage incident in february.
5:32 am
a driver accuses haynesworth of punching him in the face at an intersection. the trial was supposed to start last thursday but the case was delayed amid speculation haynesworth was trying to reach an out-of-court settlement with the other driver. we hear this advice every year. drink plenty of water. use the sun shades, crack the windows in your car if you have to park outside today or you could wind up like some of the performers at monday's memorial day parade, dangerously overheated! rescuers treated at least three dozen people sending some to the hospital with more on today's heat alert, surae chinn joins us live right by a big thermometer in mclean. good morning, surae. >> good morning. i've got my water, hope you at home don't forget yours. we've got the temperature, really didn't budge in the last half hour. 74 degrees here at 5:32. but yeah, yesterday was tough for parade-goers. it was hard to handle. >> no relief in sight except the missing -- the misting
5:33 am
tents. dozens were treated for heat exhaustion. some carried on to air- conditioned buses. others loaded on to stretchers and taken to the hospital. it was a really tough day for hundreds of marching band members who traveled from across the country to participate in the memorial day parade. and just imagine, having to not only march the route but you're dressed in wool and polyester uniforms. >> like this, minutes on end, just waiting. >> i didn't realize how hot it was until i took off my uniform and i was drenched in sweat. >> it was probably the best experience other than the heat. >> it seems as if the heat arrived sooner but i did some checking and by this time last year, we already had four days in the 90s and we actually tied the record last year with the most 90 degree days. so, today is a good day to really find a cool place, jump in the pool, not all of the pools are open during the weekdays but find an air-
5:34 am
conditioned place such as the mall or go out and eat in a cool place and just find a library, something to stay cool today. wear light clothing as well. back to you. >> good advice. surae is live in mclean this morning. we're expecting republican mitt romney to make his official announcement later this week on whether or not he's running for president of the united states. it is assumed he is. they'll join five other declared members of the g.o.p. to do that. the speculation remains centered on a 2008 vice presidential candidate. that would be sarah palin. after riding in the rolling thunder in d.c. this weekend, palin spent memorial day on a tour bus making stops at maryland's fort mchenry and in gettysburg, pennsylvania. palin hasn't decided on whether or not she's going to run yet. >> i don't know. i honestly don't know. it is still a matter of looking at the field and considering much. there truly is a lot to consider before you throw yourself out there. >> as her other possible
5:35 am

5:36 am
recession, poorhousing choices but also a relaxing of what once was a cultural stigma. too big hacking incidents already this week. we had the cyberbreak-in at bethesda based lockheed martin and a hack at broadcaster pbs. hackers have shifted their focus from companies that stored financial data or classified government information to now seek out corporate secrets or information that can lead to valuable data down the line. other recent hacking attacks also targeted emc, epsilon and sony. nowadays, folks aren't calling a company for appointments. they're using their phone in another way. tapping the power of apps to book their appointments. our partners at "usa today" report the droid and iphone owners are using apps to book a place in line at the hair salon. a tee time at the golf course. sign up for personal training sessions at the health club and book dinner reservations and for folks who hate the phone, pretty good way to go. >> i've done it a couple of
